MS Office for Windows 95


Recommended Posts

I am fairly certain that this is a false positive.

Malwarebytes Free detected five (so far) executable files (.EXE) from Microsoft Office for Windows 95 as Malware. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.

I can see how it would detect the binder;

-It launches on startup

-it has some compatibility issues

-it locks to the side of the screen

-you have to open a menu to close it

...but... why? I think the MBAM team might need to work on "MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%" detections.

That is not the mbamservice.log

Its is located here.


In order to fix this i need any one of the three:

1. Links posted for each one of the virustotal reports for each of the 5 files scanned Example of a link below.


2. The files detected zipped and attached here.

3. The mbamservice.log described above attached here.
